Upon being approved for permanent residency status, immigrants can apply for Canadian citizenship after living in Canada for a period of six years as of June 2015. Unlike permanent residency, full citizenship includes a number of privileges, such as the right to obtain a passport and vote in provincial and federal elections. While the application is being processed, it is strongly suggested that applicants not leave Canada.
Requirements for Canadian Citizenship
Denise can guide you through the application process, which includes the following requirements:
- Proof of intent to live in Canada
- English and French comprehension
- Passing the Knowledge of Canada test (must obtain a score of 75% or better)
If an application for citizenship was rejected, applicants have the right to appeal the decision within 30 days. Conducted in the same manner as an Application for Leave and Judicial Review, it does not require new evidence to be presented or testimonies from witnesses, as it is not considered as a full appeal. The court will then decide if the decision was made legally.
